40-year-old journeyman super lightweight Michael Ogundo (17-16, 14 KOs) spoiled the comeback of 38-year-old former world champion Lamont Peterson (35-6-1, 17 KOs) with a fourth round TKO. In his first fight since 2019, Peterson was dropped in round four and his corner threw in the towel moments later. The bout took place on the Davis-Garcia off-TV undercard in Washington DC.

Super welterweight prospect Vito Mielnicki Jr. (14-1, 9 KOs) battered Omar Rosales (9-2-1, 5 KOs) in four one-sided rounds. Mielnicki dropped Rosales at the end of round three and Rosales’ corner threw in the towel early in round four.

Undefeated super lightweight knockout artist Brandun Lee (27-0, 23 KOs) punished Diego Luque (21-11-2, 10 KOs) until referee Brent Bovell waved it off in round four.

Unbeaten super welterweight Travon Marshall (7-0, 6 KOs) bumrushed Shawn West (7-3-1, 4 KOs) and got a rather quick referee’s stoppage in less than a minute.

Super middleweight Kyrone Davis (17-3-1, 6 KOs) outpointed Cristián Fabián Ríos (23-16-3, 7 KOs) over eight rounds 80-72, 80-72, 79-73.

  • Didn’t expect it, but I am not surprised at all. I hope Lamont Peterson can find something else he loves doing.

  • Being ko’d by a 40yr old journeyman is about as low as it gets, should have stayed retired

  • That was a sad ending for his career. Literally no one was there except the media.

  • It’s always sad when a fighter goes out like that. He can’t really blame the loss on his opponents youth because he was older than him! I know these guys have a right to earn a living and who are we to decide when a fighter should hang them up and all that, but boxing is a dangerous sport. Once you are no longer competitive, which Peterson clearly is not, you should be forced to retire…any where in the world. No fights in Tijuana, Indonesia or anywhere. California is really strict about retiring fighters. No way are you going to have a guy coming in with 10 straight losses or a 40 year old who can’t pass an extensive neuro exam fighting in Cali.

  • Lamont Peterson was a good fighter in his prime. It’s really sad to see him in this position. Boxing needs to start a pension fund for all fighters who compete regularly for more than 5 years. Maybe that would stop these ill-advised comebacks.

    • Could be done if sanctioning fees for corrupt organizations were replaced by this in one honest organization. Seems to be more important now for money to be used for fat cats to attend endless conventions.

  • My comment is in a different direction, let’s cheer for the 40 yr old Kenyan, 16-16 who came into this as the opponent in dudes hometown and came to fight, the right hand that put down Lamont was a shot. Probably one of the best nights of this dude’s life.

    • Well said Dan! It isn’t a sad day for everyone and this almost surely ensures that Ogundo gets a nice check in his next fight.

    • Like I said, boxing is a tough sport, and prospects for Peterson’s conqueror are probably not that much better. It would appear that Ogundo has had a tough go at it himself and it’s always good to see the underdog pull through with a big win. I don’t want to piss on his parade, but I will say, it’s kind of hard to take pride in beating a guy who is a shell of his former self and is tragically still trying to fight. This fight right here is the underbelly of professional boxing.

  • I remember when Lamont Peterson was making a name for himself, then poof he was gone

  • This kinda reminds me of when Erik Morales tried to comeback. In his day, Morales was the definition of razor sharp, both in his physical appearance and the way he fought. In his last few outings, he was doughey looking and extremely slow. Almost no resemblance to the fighter he once was. I don’t know how he managed to go 12 rounds against Danny Garcia in his second to last fight. Somehow, he was granted a rematch and Garcia ko’d him in the 4th. Again, I wasn’t sure how he managed to last 4 rounds against Garcia

  • lamont was a good fighter a decade ago dont try fighting any more its not worth it look for something else to do maybe even training new fighters quit while your ahead
